Notes: The initial weekly opening range has broken to the upside and while our broader bias remains weighted to the downside below the opening range high, we look for near-term rallies to offer more favorable short entries higher up. Ideally I’d like to see a tag of former channel support (now resistance) with a turn in momentum to offer further conviction on our directional bias. A break below 1.33 warrants short exposure with such a scenario eyeing subsequent support targets.

It’s important to note that last week’s interest rate cut from the ECB came ahead of the 3Q GDP and suggests that the figure may disappoint as the economy is widely expected to grow at a marginal 0.1% during the three months through September. With the ECB’s pledge to keep interest rates at current levels or lower, the forward guidance suggests that the central bank will continue to embark on its easing cycle to stem the risk of deflation. As such, the divergence of the policy outlooks between the Fed and the ECB alone is likely to keep pressure on the EURUSD pair in the medium-term.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
